Looking for Elf on the Shelf printables and crafts? It’s almost time for that crazy Elf to be back! I wonder what fun he’ll have up his sleeves this year! If you’re looking for some ideas and inspirations, these printables and crafts should come in handy for just that.
Elf on the Shelf has been a holiday tradition in our home since our oldest was 3. It’s a magical way for our kids to spend the holiday season. Unlike some elves, our Elf, Little Elf, is a kind little guy who often appears in funny or sweet situations. On his arrival day, which is after Thanksgiving, he comes back and throws the kids a big holiday breakfast. The past few years he’s brought activities for us to do as a family each day. After so many years of having him “visit,” I could use some fresh ideas. While the magic is gone for our oldest, our youngest still believes and is looking forward to his return this year.
